Hi guys,

quite tricky problem came up after a directory has been created by
something else than mysqld in the datadir.

MariaDB has a --ignore-db-dir option since MariaDB 5.3.9 / 5.5.28,
MySQL also has the same option starting with MySQL 5.6.3 but doesn't
seem to have backported it to their 5.5 release branch ...
